Both Teams to Score
Haka and Honka traded blows at the Tapiolan Urheilupuisto last week and that was the fourth time in five encounters between the teams where both sides found the net. With just two clean sheets between the clubs in a combined 18 Veikkausliiga fixtures this season, action at either end is anticipated again when they lock horns on Wednesday.
Over 2.5 Goals
Both Haka and Honka have been an entertaining watch in the opening exchanges of the 2021 Veikkausliiga campaign. Haka’s fixtures have averaged a healthy 3.0 goals per 90 minutes while 2.6 goals have hit the net per Honka game so far. Both defences rank among the division’s five leakiest and chances to register should present themselves to both attacks this week as a result.
Jean Marie Dongou to Score Anytime
Former Barcelona starlet Jean Marie Dongou has been thriving in Finland since his move there from Spain in 2020 and the 26-year-old notched his third goal of the campaign against Haka last week. Dongou’s technical skillset, honed at Barca’s famed La Masia academy, makes him one of the Veikkausliiga’s most dangerous players and he is worth backing to add to his haul this week.
Haka vs Honka: Match Preview
Haka are targeting a much higher finish this season having narrowly escaped relegation last term and with their collection of off-season acquisitions making impressive early strides, Teemu Tainio’s side are on the up. Haka took the lead at Honka last week before they eventually lost 2-1, and they will be out for revenge in Wednesday’s rematch.
Honka endured a nightmare start to the 2021 campaign, losing seven of their first nine Veikkausliiga matches, though wins in two of their last four games – including last week’s triumph over Haka – point to an upswing in form under long-serving manager Vesa Vasara. Defensively, there are still improvements to make however, and no team has conceded more second-half goals than Honka this season.
